THE EARLY SHOW
Hi everyone, next week is official Winter Olympics week. There will be street parties, a torch relay (bring batteries) and your boss says you can work from home because the tube’s going to be a nightmare.
That should give you plenty of time to learn the words to our smash-hit new single I Prefer The Early Stuff which is released by Freakscene Records next Monday 28 May on download through (deep breath) iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Xbox Live, Rhapsody, Google Play (sounds like a condom brand), Simfy, Deezer, Nokia Music and (whisper it) Tesco. Me? I’m definitely getting my copy from Deezer.
Want to try before you buy? Fine. You can hear the song that XFM’s John Kennedy called “The entire rock and roll dream encapsulated in three and a half minutes” right here on The Winter Olympics Soundcloud (though, obviously, this isn’t quite as good as buying it).
‘The Early Stuff’ will also be released on limited edition Oyster card and travelcard holder (for the super commuter) via The Winter Olympics Church of Merch and at our completely FREE launch party at the Wheelbarrow in Camden (55 Camden High Street, London) on Wednesday 30 May at 7.30PM.
Our special guests on the night will be the magnificent Muncie Girls and the don’t-let-me-down-gently sounds of DJ Massive Disappointment from Art Brut. If that’s not enough excitement for you, there’s free wi-fi, hot pies and discounted Jägerbombs all night. Here’s the flyer:

I MISS THE NINETIES LAUNCH PARTY
Like a fat man in a wedding photo we just can’t hold it in any longer. I Miss the Nineties, the new single by The Winter Olympics, is coming out on Monday 14 March, and to celebrate we’re throwing a killer FREE party on Wednesday 16 March. That gives you TWO whole days after buying the single on Monday morning to learn all the words… That goes for both band and audience.
This ABSOLUTELY FREE event is at The Wheelbarrow on Camden High Street. On the bill so far are:
THE WINTER OLYMPICS
Your favourite band, the Kings and Queens of rock, pop and soul, the Lords of Loud. Us. Brand new recipe, same great taste.
SECRET TEEN HEARTTHROBS
We can’t tell you who our very special secret guests are, but my God you’ll thank us for booking them.
